Boy Meets Girl. Boy Falls in Love. Girl Does Not.
|In this quirky romantic comedy about love and fate, a young greeting card writer (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is hopelessly, helplessly searching for the girl of his dreams...and his new co-worker, Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel), may just be "the one." But the 500 days of their offbeat relationship reveal (in no particular order) that the road to happiness can be unpredictable, uncontrollable -- and unbelievably funny!|
"Something seldom seen: an original romantic comedy. Michael Ordona, Los Angeles Times
"It's a feat of star acting, and it helps make (500) Days not just bitter or sweet but everything in between. Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
Editor's NoteFans of HIGH FIDELITY and ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND will be charmed by this quirky film that sheds a linear plot in favor of a memory-driven look at a failed romance. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (BRICK) stars as Tom, a greeting-card writer who dreams of becoming an architect and finding his true love. Zooey Deschanel (THE HAPPENING) plays Summer, a vintage-looking beauty whose ideas about love are entirely modern. As Tom remembers his 500 days with Summer, his mind jumps from moment to moment, largely thinking of the good times in their trouble-filled relationship.Indie darlings Deschanel and Gordon-Levitt are perfectly cast in this sweet, funny film that infuses the typical romantic tropes with reality. Anyone else would have caused audiences to hate Summer, but Deschanel is adorable enough that she still endears herself to viewers. Arthouse favorite Gordon-Levitt hasn?t played a traditional romantic lead since 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU in 1999, but here he proves equally adept at portraying Tom?s sweetness and his neuroses. Music-video director Marc Webb makes his feature debut with (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, and it?s easy to see influences of his past work. The soundtrack boasts songs from Regina Spektor, Doves, Feist, Wolfmother, and, of course, The Smiths, the band that brings the couple together. Webb also adds an innovative style to the dramedy, combining a naturalistic look at love with a non-linear plot, animated vignettes, and a triumphant musical sequence. The film?s mixture of cynicism and romance makes it perfect viewing for happy couples, the recently dumped, and the hopeful singles in the audience.

|I saw this when it was on the big screen and absolutely loved it. I was drawn into the relationship and truly felt for them. Going into watching this Blu-ray I have to admit that I was a little worried about how it would hold up upon multiple viewings. I was especially worried considering that it placed third on my "Favorite of 2009" list. My worries subsided a little bit as I looked at the case in my hands. As I looked at the cover and prepared to fire it up, memories of seeing it on the big screen came back. Watching the movie a second (and third) time proved to be just as good as the first....read the full review|
